Jill Macyshon is the Winnipeg Bureau Chief for CTV NATIONAL NEWS, contributing coverage of significant events unfolding across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and the surrounding regions.

In this role, Macyshon has spent time on the streets of Winnipeg covering the city’s meth epidemic. She reported from Humboldt, Sask. in April 2018 following the Humboldt Broncos bus accident that killed 16 people. In 2013, Macyshon was part of CTV NATIONAL NEWS’ comprehensive reporting on the historic flooding in southern Alberta, travelling from Calgary to Medicine Hat to deliver reports from the hardest-hit community, High River, Alta. Macyshon also covered the long legal battle in Winnipeg against former junior hockey coach Graham James.

Macyshon has travelled to dozens of Indigenous communities across Canada, reporting on skyrocketing suicide statistics, health concerns, and poverty among Canada’s Indigenous Peoples. She was in the Northern Ontario community of Kashechewan when a contaminated water supply forced an evacuation. She has also travelled to remote communities across Northern Manitoba, where water and health issues are a constant challenge.

Macyshon began her career as a general assignment reporter at CKY-TV in Winnipeg, and joined CTV NATIONAL NEWS as Aboriginal Affairs Reporter in 2002.
